In April I will be at the International Journalism Festival in Perugia, Italy presenting “Your Smartphone is Your Newsroom”  and producing two workshops on mobile video and multimedia reporting.

April 15-19, 2015

Keynote: “Your Smartphone is Your Newsroom”
The shift to mobile-first journalism is challenging both the way journalists produce and present interactive news for mobile audiences. 
Montgomery will show new ways of reporting and sharing videos and multimedia content that connects with mobile consumers. 
Emerging mobile behaviors are forcing producers to find innovative solutions. Among the challenges are how to best present reports for “tallscreen” mobile users.
He will also show what it takes to begin to retool news operations into a mobile-first operation by organizing workflows around highly-responsive mobile news production and delivery.
Robb Montgomery consults with large media houses like Radio Free Europe to retool their thinking, training and workflows around mobile journalism, mobile apps and delivering a great mobile experience from top to bottom.
